The Linger Effect - Charmer [MMM024]


Published February 1, 2005
Topics New Wave


mmm024.jpgNewfoundland's Kent Burt makes his triumphant return to My Mean Magpie with the release of his first set of recordings in three years!

Kent Burt wouldn't deny the label of "New Wave" that is so easily attached to his music. Uninterested in exploring the political rhetoric or machimo he associated with the early 90's "punk scene" -- unrelated to punk as he understood it (Wire, Gang Of Four, the Fall) -- Kent settled into writing pop songs. If not apparent by the end of the album, Kent makes his influences quite clear with the inclusion of a cover of "Haystack" by obscure Factory Records recording artist Kevin Hewick.

Charmer features the first collaborative effort on a Linger Effect release. From Conception Bay North, Newfoundland, via Montreal, Quebec, Stephen Andrew Guy (Good Kids Pretend They're Bad, The Get Out, Blainerunner, Tilton, The Vav) contributed lyrics and vocals on the appropriately titled "Stephen Song." Currently on sabbatical in Hungary, Stephen's most recent recorded output comes via Canadian Idol favourite Jenny Gear who covered "The Mirror In Mom's Room" on her debut CD.

File next to:
New Order, Section 25, Unrest, Stockholm Monsters, The Velvet Underground, the Feelies, the Wedding Present, the Cure, the Fall, the Smiths, Galaxie 500, Wire, Roxy Music, Cheap Trick, Blondie, Television, Ultravox.
